    FREESTANDING INSTALLATION Venting Introduction This pellet stove operates on a negative draft system, which pulls combustion air through the burn pot and pushes the exhaust air to the vent pipe and out of the building. This unit must be installed in accordance with the following detailed descriptions of venting techniques;...

  • Page 10: Additional Venting Information

    FREESTANDING INSTALLATION Additional Venting Information  Do not mix and match components from different pipe manufacturers when assembling your venting system (i.e. Do NOT use venting pipe from one manufacturer and a thimble from another).  We require a minimum vertical rise of 36 in. (3 ft.) of pipe to create natural draft in the system, which helps evacuate smoke from the stove in the event of a power failure or combustion blower failure.

  • Page 11

    FREESTANDING INSTALLATION Approved Venting Method 1: Through the Wall  Generally the simplest installation method, venting through the wall using our AC-3000 kit (or similar venting system) is also the preferred venting method. It minimizes horizontal pipe, allows the stove to be installed close to the wall and keeps the clean-out tee on the outside of the house, for ease of cleaning.

  • Page 12

    FREESTANDING INSTALLATION Approved Venting Method 2: Through the Ceiling  Venting through the ceiling/roof may be the only feasible venting option in some cases and is a factory recommended installation.  When installing any venting system, Type L or Type PL pipe must be used and all clearances to combustibles listed by the pipe manufacturer must be strictly adhered ...

  • Page 13

    FREESTANDING INSTALLATION Approved Venting Method 3: Existing Chimney System  Using an existing masonry or factory built chimney for venting is the only other acceptable method for venting this pellet unit.  Use Type L or Type PL venting pipe until entering the existing chimney.

    FREESTANDING INSTALLATION Mobile Home Installation  As with all installations involving this unit, the use of outside combustion air is mandatory and MUST be used. Please see the “Outside Air” section on page 15 for more information regarding outside air connections. ...

  • Page 15: Outside Air Hook-up

    OUTSIDE AIR HOOK-UP  The use of outside combustion air is mandatory on the 25-EP.  The outside air connection pipe protrudes from the lower rear center of the stove; use the included outside air kit to attach your stove to outside combustion air.

  • Page 16: Floor Protection

    FREESTANDING FLOOR PROTECTION  The 25-EP requires a non-combustible floor protector if the stove is to be installed on a combustible floor. If the floor the stove is be installed on is already non-combustible (i.e. a concrete floor in a basement), no floor protection is needed (although a decorative floor protector can still be used for aesthetic reasons).

  • Page 21

    FIREPLACE INSERT INSTALLATION Additional Venting Information  The installation of a fireplace insert can be challenging and requires knowledge of chimney systems that the average homeowner does not have. Due to this, England’s Stove Works highly recommends having this insert professionally installed.

  • Page 22

    FIREPLACE INSERT INSTALLATION Approved Venting Method: Full Chimney Relining  Use a chimney liner system specifically designed for pellet stove use; follow the guidelines in the previous section regarding appropriate liner diameter.  Use the tee supplied by the liner manufacturer to connect the exhaust outlet of the stove to the chimney lining system.

     The 25-EP will perform equally well using softwood and hardwood pellets, and although the ash may differ slightly in appearance or texture, both types of pellets will burn cleanly and efficiently in this stove.  The 25-EP is equipped with an automatic pellet ignition system; the only user input required to light the stove is a simple press of the “On”...

  • Page 27: Control Board Settings

    CONTROL BOARD SETTINGS The control board on this stove allows the user to adjust the heat output and convection blower speed, turn the unit on and off, and test components for function (more on diagnostic mode later).  The lower buttons on the control board (Low Fuel Feed, Low Burn Air, and Air on Temp) are not meant to be adjusted during normal operation of the unit.

  • Page 28: Error Codes

    ERROR CODES Error codes, or “E-Codes,” are alphanumeric codes that will appear in the Heat Range and Blower Speed windows of the Control Board if the unit experiences an abnormal condition. Error codes are the control board’s way of telling the user that something isn’t operating correctly within the stove, and that the unit should be carefully inspected before reigniting.

  • Page 30: Thermostat Installation

    THERMOSTAT OPERATION Thermostat Installation 1. Unplug the unit and remove the back panel of the stove. 2. Locate the thermostat connect block, labeled J18, on the rear of the control board, near the bottom (See image below and pg. 52 of this manual for a control board diagram).

  • Page 31: Thermostat Operation

    THERMOSTAT OPERATION Thermostat Operation Details  The 25-EP was designed to operate equally well in both manual and thermostat mode. While using the control board for heating control gives the user control over the heat output of the stove, the thermostat allows the stove to “start-up” and “shutdown” independently which will help maintain your house at a more constant temperature and save pellet fuel.

  • Page 32

    DAILY MAINTENANCE Important Notes  As with any maintenance concerning this unit, be sure the unit is “OFF” and has completed the Shut-Down cycle BEFORE beginning.  Be aware that metal parts in the firebox can remain HOT long after the fire has gone out and EVEN after the Shut-Down cycle is complete.

  • Page 33

    DAILY MAINTENANCE Ash Removal and Disposal  Press the “Off” button and allow the stove to complete the shut-down cycle and cool completely.  Grasp the heat exchange cleaning rod located at the middle of the decorative room air grill and repeatedly pull it in and out until ash stops falling from the tubes into the firebox.

  • Page 34

    DAILY MAINTENANCE Cleaning the Burnpot Along with removing ashes from the stove, cleaning the burnpot is the other essential part of daily maintenance that will keep the stove operating at its peak. Pellets contain varying amounts of impurities and fusible material that will accumulate in the burnpot over time.

  • Page 35

    BIWEEKLY MAINTENANCE Important Notes  As with any maintenance concerning this unit, be sure the unit is “OFF,” has completed the Shut-Down cycle, and is completely cool BEFORE beginning.  Be aware that metal parts in the firebox can remain HOT long after the fire has gone out and EVEN after the Shut-Down cycle is complete.

  • Page 36

    BIWEEKLY MAINTENANCE Baffle Removal  Using the integral tube cleaner, as mentioned in the Daily Maintenance section, helps to keep the heat exchanger tubes free from fly ash; however, fly ash will still accumulate on the baffle shelf and in other non-visible areas.

  • Page 37

    MONTHLY MAINTENANCE Important Notes  As with any maintenance concerning this unit, be sure the unit is “OFF,” has completed the Shut-Down cycle, and is completely cool BEFORE beginning.  Be aware that metal parts in the firebox can remain HOT long after the fire has gone out and EVEN after the Shut-Down cycle is complete.

  • Page 38: O Exhaust Chamber

    MONTHLY MAINTENANCE Exhaust Chamber Cleaning The exhaust chamber of the stove was intentionally designed as an ash accumulation area. Allowing ash to accumulate here prevents excess ash build-up in the combustion blower and the venting system. Similarly, the exhaust chamber is easily accessible via the two exhaust chamber clean-out ports located in the firebox.

  • Page 39

     MONTHLY MAINTENANCE Venting Pipe Cleaning  Low spots and direction changes in the venting system (such as tee’s and elbows) are areas for potential fly-ash accumulation. INSPECT these areas diligently to keep the venting system in safe operating condition. ...

  • Page 40

     YEARLY MAINTENANCE Important Notes  As with any maintenance concerning this unit, be sure the unit is “OFF,” has completed the Shut-Down cycle, and is completely cool BEFORE beginning.  Be aware that metal parts in the firebox can remain HOT long after the fire has gone out and EVEN after the Shut-Down cycle is complete.

  • Page 41

    YEARLY MAINTENANCE Exhaust Blower Cleaning Although the exhaust blower and blower housing were designed to minimize ash build-up, some fly-ash will still accumulate there throughout the burning season. The amount and type of ash will depend on the type of pellets and venting system, but generally this accumulation will be mild.

  • Page 42

     Loosen and remove the 5/16” screw, on the top of the exhaust blower output connection, which holds the thermal sensor to the exhaust blower.  Loosen the five (5) 5/16” self-drilling screws which hold the exhaust blower to the exhaust blower tube. The lower screws are most easily accessed through the circular cutouts in the stove body.

  • Page 43

     YEARLY MAINTENANCE Convection Blower Cleaning As always, be certain the stove is cool and unplugged before servicing any components within the unit. Since the convection blower does not handle any by-products of combustion, it does not require serious cleaning like the exhaust blower. However, dust from the home and other debris in the air can accumulate on the blades of the convection blower.

  • Page 44

     YEARLY MAINTENANCE Checking Gaskets An airtight seal at the door openings and hopper lid opening is crucial to proper stove performance. Any air leaks at these areas can not only cause a dirty, inefficient burn but can also pose a serious safety threat. Because of this, gaskets should always be maintained in good condition.
